Jonathan Rowson: The Seven Deadly Chess Sins
Compiled by cu8sfan
--*--

This is a collection of most of the games in Jonathan Rowson's excellent book "The Seven Deadly Chess Sins" (http://www.gambitbooks.com/books/se...). Jonathan Rowson is a very knowledgeable writer and this is an excellent book. The chapter on "Wanting" alone is worth it and was partly responsible for me finding the fun in The Game again. (Sorry, I was not able to locate all the games in the book).
